I just bought a nikon 55-330. Many of my test images seem soft at 300 mm but but better when it is not zoom at as far.

I am wondering if it is my camera technique and not the lens.

Has any body experienced this with Nikon 55-300.

I shot this image of Roscoe at 300 mm, f5.6 , 1/60 sec with a flash with a new D7100. It looks good to me. But two other images of a 4 image test i did not like. They seems soft or out of focus.

Any thoughts on this?
